I am a student in the Linguistics PhD program at the University of Chicago. My principal research interest is working memory mechanisms during sentence comprehension. I use psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic methods (specifically EEG) to investigate the interaction between representational complexity and working memory in language processing. I am part of the Language Processing Lab under the guidance of Dr. Ming Xiang. My dissertation research is supported by an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant, #BCS-2116952.

I am working on my dissertation project, which examines the encoding, maintenance and retrieval of complex linguistic representations in working memory. The project employs both self-paced reading and electroencephalogram (EEG). Specifically, it is guided by three research questions:
I previously worked on a project examining statistical learning and determiner-noun fusion in Haitian Creole.
